Guernsey Sketchbook

by Valerie Baines Book Guild c/o The Guernsey Press Shop

Join artist Valerie Baines on a watercolour tour of Guernsey.  From fields of wild flowers (the bluebell woods between Fort George and Fermain Bay), to winding cliff paths (with Rocket plants from Tenerife, growing wild on the south coast in St Martin's), taking in the beautiful flora and fauna and many of the island's notable sights along the way.  Places such as L'Ancresse Common with its coastal fortifications, Vale Church built in the 12th century, the Little Chapel at Vauxbelets (a miniature version of the grotto and basilica at Lourdes) entirely covered in sea shells, pebbles and colourful pieces of broken china and La Seigneurie Gardens of Sark are also portrayed in these paintings.

Captivated by the natural beauty of Guernsey, Valerie Baines has been visiting the island and painting its delights for more than 40 years.  The stunning coastal views, charming historic buildings, secluded rural paths and glorious wild flowers are all captured in her exquisite watercolour paintings.  From the harbour at St Peter Port to cliffs strewn with gorse, from rocky bays to wild orchids, Guernsey's rich history and abundant habitat are brought vividly to life by this gifted artist.
